Spring is in the Air
Outdoor Classroom with focus on interdisciplinary teaching.
Age-group: students in 9th and 10th grade.
This happens every year, after a long and cold winter we all yearn to be out when the sun is shining. Therefore it is important to have some material to use for an outdoor classroom. The assignments that I have developed for this purpose could be called interdisciplinary outdoor tasks. They combine the learning of English with history or geology. Such assignments can be developed in all parts of Reykjavik, since these are never very far off. The organization is very easy. All the students need is a pencil, the teacher gives them a hand-out they have to fill out and show that they have paid attention to the lesson.
